Investing in Very Early Stage Clean Energy Technologies
EcoElectron Ventures is a seed stage capital investment fund established to commercialize promising clean energy
technologies located in Southern California. We provide strategic planning,
business management and cash equity to start-up and very early stage companies.
We are a cross between a venture capital (VC) firm and a Chief Executive
While every situation is different, we often are involved with business
formation, intellectual property protection, establishment and management of
financial systems, identification of and negotiation with strategic partners
and employees, managing the day-to-day business and whatever else is necessary
to jump-start a business.
Like a VC, we provide cash for equity, although at much earlier stages, and
will work with you to secure follow-on funding as necessary.
Like a CEO, we work with you to do what’s necessary to get the business going
and take it to the “next stage,” freeing the innovators to focus on their core
competencies, which is usually technology development.
We charge no fees and draw no
salaries. We are compensated only with equity.
We are interested in innovative technologies in renewable and clean energy
generation, energy conservation, energy efficiency improvements, energy storage and power quality, power transmission innovations, and energy control and communication software (Areas of Interest).
Companies must be in the San Diego region and technologies must be within three
years of commercialization (Investment Criteria).
